Leslie was immediately struck by the horror endured by victims of mesothelioma and the pain and suffering which resulted from corporate greed. Over a decade ago, Leslie worked tirelessly with a small group of pioneers to create a separate and distinct court docket to handle lawsuits brought by those suffering from mesothelioma. Although she was met with opposition along the way, Leslie helped build one of the nation’s most efficient systems for handling mesothelioma and asbestos-related cancer cases.
While Leslie continues to fight by her client’s side, she is also involved in community and church activities. With her track record of helping others, she is one of the most devoted lawyers in asbestos litigation. Her perseverance and strong character make her a genuinely caring attorney. In order to gain justice for the victim, Leslie puts their well-being first. Leslie will go beyond what she needs to do in order to get the results that she feels are fair to her client.
